Laser Hair Removal: Questions and Answers


Is It Permanent?

Yes laser hair removal is permanent, but only after multiple sittings. For the best results of permanent hair removal, we advise between 6 – 8 sessions for the best results.

What Are the Risks?

The only risk that needs to be considered is the person’s eyes. Both client and technician should be taking precaution whilst in the room, and wear safety goggles to the specific laser being used.

Does It Hurt?

At Ruma we use the Soprano Ice Laser. This is the most advanced piece of technology specifically made for laser hair removal. It makes the procedure virtually painless, thanks to the cool laser tips which soothes the heat on the skin as the laser zaps away the hair follicles.

Do I Need to Go to a Doctor or Is It Ok to Go Elsewhere?

All of the laser hair technicians at Ruma are fully qualified, professional and certified technicians. You do not need to see a doctor for laser hair removal treatments; however, we always recommend you check that the person performing the service is fully a qualified specialist.

Does It Work on Different Skin Types?

Laser hair removal works across all skin types.

How Long Does It Take?

This entirely depends on which section of your body you choose to have laser treatment on. For example, the upper lip would be a lot quicker to do in comparison to both legs. To advise exactly how much time you will need to come in for, please get in touch with us.

What Areas Should I Have Laser Hair Removal?

The decision of where to get this done is completely down to personal preference. People often want it done where the hair is darker or is more prominent. For the most part, clients have this procedure done because it’s a lot more convenient than shaving and waxing in the long term.
